Neovim was again accepted into the Google Summer of Code program. View our page on the GSoC website for details. Our ideas list runneth over! You’re also welcome to propose other ideas in chat or on the ticket tracker.

Our mentors are looking forward to your GSoC proposals in the next weeks! The best way to get familiar with Neovim development is to send a pull request to help out with a small bug or feature request. Working with students on pull requests is extremely helpful for determining mentor-student workflow.
